Mick says ref got it right as Cressy apologises over red card

Mick McCarthy had no arguments with referee Andy D’Urso’s decision not to award a penalty when Frank Nouble went down under a challenge from Jean Yves Mvoto in the last minute. 

Daryl Murphy gave Blues the lead with his fourth goal of the season but Jim O’Brien gave the Tykes a deserved point with an equaliser midway through the second-half. 

“We messed it up in the second-half, didn’t we,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“You have to give them credit though. They did to us what we did to them in the first-half and in the end it was a good point because we could have lost it. 

“We didn’t play well but we stuck at it and got something from a game that perhaps last season, we would have lost.

“With the penalty appeal, the referee got it right. It wasn’t a penalty. 

“I have seen them given when you are the home side but I have not seen an angle yet when it has convinced me it’s a penalty. It was two big guys wrestling for the ball.”

Aaron Cresswell was sent-off after the final whistle for foul and abusive language and faces a two match ban. 

“Of course Aaron has let himself down. It’s come out of frustration but he’s gone in and apologised to the referee after the game and that takes some guts.”
